NEW ORLEANS - Throngs of parade goers filled the Uptown streets for a long day of krewes that included five daytime parades and the megakrewe of Bacchus at night.

Judging by the traffic on the interstate and throughout any city street that led to Uptown or the CBD, huge crowds, perhaps starved for parading after Saturday morning's washout, attended.

Celebrity funnyman Will Ferrell led the Krewe of Bacchus, which pushed off at just before 5:30 Uptown.
